Blacklegging on the Boys. A Lesson in Organised Scabbery at Sydney Glass Bottle Works. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 11 February 1911
Blacklegging on the Boys. A Lesson in Organised Scabbery at Sydney Glass Bottle Works. BY J. K. WILSON. With the Labor Party in political possession in N .S. W . , many thought the time had come when strikes and lockouts would be relegated to the past. Labor members, speaking from the -.Worker balcony on the night of their election victory, stated that, under the sane and beneficent rule of the Labor Party, in dustrial squaUWes wouiu oe seuieu in suen a practical manner that the average man would not know there was such a thing as strained relations between any section of the working-class and the employers. Bit, although the Labor Party has only enjoyed the sweets of office fora few months, there has been the same unrest, the same clashing of economic interests, and quite a number of strikes. The latest strike is that of about DO. hoy workers employed in the glass works ;\t Waterloo; and, although the number on strike is not large, and although they are boys instead of men, the str...

Mac's Soliloquy. nv lion's tooth. HuLlo, what's this! An invitation to at tend the royal corroborec! Not I. Was I not leader of Ned's Opposition, and am 1 not now the democratic head of tlicdemo cratic Labor Government in the most demo cratic State of- the most democratic country in the world? Of course, lam! And shall I accept this invitation to &it in the same cushioned seat with plutocratic lords, dukes, earls, and other social parasites, and lend my plebeian countenance to the imperialistic and barbaric farce of a coronation? Never! I'm plain Mac; and the corns which I made on my diligent hands whilst toiling for the plundering plutocratic crowd are not soften ed yet. My sympathies are with the down trodden workers who are legally robbed to keep tl iosc pampered drones in luxury and idleness.

The Folly of Optimism. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 11 February 1911
The Folly of Optimism. As they draw near the town, they saw a negro stretched on the ground with only one half of his habit, which was a kind of linen frock, for the poor man had lost his left foot and his right hand. 'Good God,' said Gandide in Dutch; ' what does thou here, friend, in this de plorable condition?' ' I am waiting for my ir aster, Mynheer Vanderdyndur, the famous trader,' an swered the negro. ' Was it Mynheer Vanderdyndur that used you in this manner?' '' Yes, sir,' said the negro; 'it is the custom here. They give ;v -linen garment twice a year, and that is all our covering. When we labor in the sugar works, and the mill happens to snatch oil' a finger, they instantly chop off' our hand; and when wi attempt to run away, they cut off a lug. Both these cases happened to 'me; and it is at this expense that you eat sugar in Europe. ? 'And yet when my mother sold me for ten patacoons on the coast of Guinea, she said to me, ' My dear child, bless our fetishes;' adore them ...
Socialist Fables. "Saving Up." [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 11 February 1911
Socialist Fables. 'Saving Up.' 15 Y W.R.W. An old cockatoo and his wife once lived in a tall tree hear a farmer's homestead. They had reared many young ones, who had all got married and left the old couple to look after themselves in their age. As they were getting very old, the cocka too said that he thought it was time to save something for their old age when they could no longer work. His wife agreed, and they looked round for a convenient place in which to store their savings. After a long search, they discovered a hole in the roof of one of the farmer's barns. The hole was very .small, but they found that they could easily drop grains of corn into it, so they decided that it would be the best place to store their grain. For .sumo years they- toiled to fill up the hole with grain, but t'.e barn never got full, and at last the birds got so old that they could work no more, and not knowing how to get the grain out, which they had put in, they died of starvation. The farmers' child...
An Open Letter. To the Conscript Boys of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 11 February 1911
An Open Letter. To the Conscript Boys of Australia. BY H. E. HOLLAND AND W.R.W. CONSCRIPT BOYS OF AUSTRALIA, — Last week, per medium of the columns of the capitalist papers which have al- ways adopted a bitterly hostile atti- tude to your class—your fathers and &nbsp; &nbsp; mothers, brothers and sisters—in &nbsp; &nbsp; times of industrial strife, the Minister for Defence, Senator Pearce, ad- dressed a letter to you, in which he called upon "every lad worthy of the &nbsp; name of Australian," to become a trained fighter. Senator Pearce says : "You and I &nbsp; &nbsp; are partners in a big scheme." He has named it correctly, for it is in- deed a ''scheme," but you are not of the schemers who originated it. You are not partners in the "scheme," for you have been dragged into it by force by the real SCHEMERS, who have never told you why you have been dragged in. And Senator Pearce himself is only a partner to the extent of formul...
THE CONTENTED SLAVE. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 11 February 1911
THE CONTENTED SLAVE. Come, all ye weary toilers, And a song I'll sing for you; Stand firm by rich despoilers, And keep this thought in view; That we cannot live without them, And oh, how sad 'twould be To enjoy the fruits of our labor In a land from grafters free! Then sin—and shout—and vote the g.o.p. &nbsp; And fling — about — great chunks of Libertee. Yonder stands the master's mansion, He has one across the sea; And you slaves keep toiling on. You have builded every city, Every ship and every mad. And a palace for the master— &nbsp; But what of your abode? Stagger yau beneath your burdens, And the point of Cossacks swords; Then work—and save—and serve the mas- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ters well; Don't, shirk—nor rave—nor think of raising &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; hell. Yonder lies the Silent City, Just beside the silent dell: And you slaves keep toiling on. —Appeal to Reason. &nbsp;
Socialist Fables. A False Report. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 February 1911
Socialist Fables. [ A False Report. BY W.R.W. O-a- day a small terrier ran out of a news paper office into the street, barking as loudly us he could. Another dog heard him, and, leaving i bone which he had just stolen, he too rushed out and barked with the small dog. Then all the dogs in the town rushed out of lanes anri viivria until *!-„:„ t..:i« ..„ ? i hair bristling, barking hard enough to loosen their ribs. The commotion was terrific, and several lights occurred before quiet was restored. When things quietened down, one old dog, who had just had a desperate tussle, scratched up the dust, and, smelling a post, said to one who was walking round admii\ ing him : ' What the deuce was all the row about?' (- 'Dashed if I know,' said the other; ' but that little mongrel-terrier ran out of the news oilice shouting l Wolf! Wolf ! ' and making it apDear that there was a Socialistic wolf about who was going to upset every thing and grab the bones from every other dog in the community.' '...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 February 1911
Following on the strike at Sellar's (Ade laide) contract, the laborers on Oliver's job in Wakefield-street struck for 10s. The daily press announces that the officials of the alleged union (the B.L.U.) ARE AFRAID THEY WON'T BE ABLE TO HOLD THE MEN IN CHECK— that is, that they won't be able to prevent the workers jeopardising the bosses' interests by precipitating a big strike.
Korea. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 February 1911
Korea. The mailed fist rules at present in Korea, and the peace' which the Japan ese Government is fond of describing is but the peace of the churchyard The Japanese walk about the streets with loaded revolvers, their fingers on the trigger, and shoot down any Koreans who do not make room quick enough or show sufficient politeness. If a prosecution follows they are usually ac quitted, for they say they acted in selfde fence, and — dead men tell no tales.

Sweden. The Reichstag by-election in the third district of Stockholm resulted in the victory of Winherg (Socialist) with 2, 189 votes over the Conservative, Nilsson, who polled 998, and the Liberal, Ceder, who polled 959 votes. The seat was already in the possession of the Social-Democrats, but the bour geois parties had counted on winning it back this time, as both Liberals and Con servatives had put up ' Labor leaders ' as candidates.
United States. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 February 1911
United States. Mayor Siedel of Milwaukee has written the chief of police instructing him not to interfere with. ' disemployecl citizens,' or in other worcs with garment workers now on strike. Aldjrinan Meims sent word to the strikers: 'You have with you the mayor, the city council and the entire city adminis tration. Tf any Milwaukee judge should de cide against you because you have been picketing, we will sec to it that his life on the bench will be a short one.' Twelve thousand have been added to the membership of the party the past year in America. Comrade W. £:uniner \V.

Ethics and Capitalism. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 February 1911
Ethics and Capitalism. BY J. BLUMENTHAL. Ethics is that branch of sociology which treats of morality both organic and social, in relation to the two principles of our natures — egoism and altruism. It is one of the most valu able of sciences, although scarcely considered a science. Organically considered, the human is the highest type of animal in the world. The lower the animal life the less the affection between parents and progeny, but the devel opment of organic bodies, such as tlie mammui and placenta, entails more care and responsibility on the off spring by the parents, especially the mother. This responsibility compels more attention and thought for others, and entails more individual suffering and sacrifice: a principle of altruism triumphing over egoism. The child is an egoist pure and sim ple, and it is only when it arrives at an age when marriage is contem plated, that pure altruistic principles predominate. Man is a social animal, and this association has been the primo...
The Inventor and Landlord. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 February 1911
The Inventor and Landlord. BY J.B. It will cost an inventor to patent his invention in every country of the world £400. As the inventor is usually a man of very small means, he will have to sell his patent, or the larger portion of his rights to it, to capitalists who will^capitalise and pa tent his invention. And this rob bery of a man placed in a position of economic dependence constitutes the rent of ability of the capitalists arcording to the bourgeois econo mists ! The inventor is hampered in another respect. His invention is his private property for 14 years (ac cording to law) ; after that period it is public property. Now the land lord has the use of his land not for 14 years but for life and his descen dants' lives. The landlord did not make the land, yet it is his forever! The inventor made the invention, yet it is not his for life! The landlord owned and controlled the machinery of government, and -therefore made the law in the interest of his class. The inventor, being u...
France. [Newspaper Article] — The International Socialist — 18 February 1911
France. President Fallieres has commuted the death sentence on Durand into one of seven years' solitary confinement; but the French trade unionists are not satisfied. Seven years of solitary confinement may be as bad as, or even worse than, death. Our eoiu rades demand his liberation; and the General Confederation of Labor suggests a 2-1 or -Ib hours' strike to back up their de mand. Either sentence— of death or soli tary confinement— is an outrage on all rights, personal and social. For a trade union secretary, because he has talked of 'fighting the blacklegs,' to be charged with 'moral complicity' in a murder which occurred a dozen days later, and was not the work of the strikers at all — that tueh a charge should have been made is a grotesque misuse of the power of the law. For the Assize Court at Ilouen to have entertained t it at all is remarkable; but after sentencing | the actual murderers to imprisonment only, | it was a mockery of justice to sentence i: Durand to death for ...

Fi:i.i.ii\v W.usk-Woukkus,— '] lie .time hits surely arrived when some one .standing in the liri nK-lino of the Social llovol .ition should have n word or two to say as to matters concerning the Australian postal employees, and the extremities to Avhieh they find themselves driven by the relentlessness of things as they are. You will forgive me if in the course of this letter I spealc plain words. We .Socialists are plain, blunt people, with a propensity for proclaiming the truth even when the truth is most unpalatable.
